Rug Pad USA provided rug pads for me to review but all opinions are 100% my own.
If you read my blog, you know that I am becoming more and more conscious about the products I bring into my home. Recently, I was contacted by Rug Pad USA which is a rug pad retailer based outside the Greater New York area (my neck of the woods). Their rug pads are eco-friendly and made in the USA which is important to me because it seems the only rug pads you see in retail stores are those toxic PVC types that are imported from who knows where!
Anyway, after providing them with measurements from a couple of my area rugs, Rug Pad USA sent me two of their Super-Lock Natural Rubber rug pads custom cut to my specifications. I chose the Super-Lock Natural pads because they work well on tile floors, are made with untreated natural rubber and are resistant to mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria. Since one of my rugs is under the kitchen table and the other in our back hallway, I wanted to choose something that could hold up to spills and high traffic.
As you can see, I was in desperate need of some new rug pads around here. Plus who the heck knows what those old ones were made from! I want my home to be as healthy as possible..
And when you have kids and pets, eco-friendly is the way to go! As you can see, Rosie had to get involved in the set up…
“Can I open my eyes yet?”
The rug pads grip well to the floor and don’t have any kind of toxic smell to them. They only smelled like rubber when I opened the package but after I put the rugs over them, I didn’t notice it anymore. Plus, the rug pads are made from natural rubber harvested from rubber trees, not from synthetic latex.
After placing the pads, my son gave the comfort approval…
and I was happy to be taking another step towards a healthier home!
